Sing in a quartet

Barbershop music originated with quartets – each person carrying their own part creating and improvising harmonies around the melody.

Whilst singing in a quartet can be very challenging due to the fact there is only one person singing each part, it is equally rewarding, to find the right balance of voices, abilities and personalities to ring those chords and wow the audiences.

Any member of Sweet Adelines International can form or join to sing in a quartet. If you wish to sing in a quartet but not a member of a chartered chorus, you need to join Sweet Adelines International as Chapter-at-Large.

As a Chapter-at-Large member, you can participate in all educational opportunities, and enjoy all regional and international membership privileges. You will receive a membership card, subscription to The Pitch Pipe, member rates for convention registrations (regional and international) and education events, and discounts on purchases on the Sweet Adelines International Sales shop.
